This is a sipdown from the Easter Tea Trail and…yeah. I still don’t like lime gelato. Granted, I don’t like lime. It was okay, but nothing I’d search out again.
“mmmmmm... ok so *Raritea* found me a David's Tea that i really like. This is better than the 52 teas honeybush that i tried earlier. This is especially delicious in contrast to the sweet vanilla...” Read full tasting note

Remember the summer you spent in Italy? Sipping espresso on the terrace, catching a ride on the back of a stranger’s Vespa, and of course, trying your first taste of tart, creamy lime gelato. With its fresh, fruity aroma and smooth flavour, this delicious mix of fruit, yogurt, and green tea will bring you right back. Try it iced. On a terrace. While the moon hits your eye.

I coldbrewed the last of this leaf overnight and took the teabag out mid-afternoon today. It was a lovely pale yellow-green. I sipped it then and was pleasantly surprised to find no bitterness at all.
This is much better cold-brewed than served hot. I’m really tasting the lemongrass and pineapple. However, I’m not tasting very much lime or much creaminess – and that’s what I signed up for.
Anyways, this is pleasant, but I’m probably not going to restock.
I keep saying this but DavidsTea should REALLY consider opening a store in Seattle! Another sample from the wonderful miss Courtney~ It’s so good! I wasn’t really expecting to like it as much as I do but the lime and cream flavors pair up perfectly. I’ve already made two cups of this and am contemplating making another…
This tea is one of my all time favorites, hot or iced. It’s creamy, lime, and just a wonderful drink to relax with. The only problem is if you do not steep it absolutely, 100% perfectly, it will come out lackluster and disappointing. When you do it right, it’s the best tea you’ll ever drink. Sadly it is pretty rare that it comes out that great.
Broke this out when I wanted something light, sweet and not too strong, and it fit the bill perfectly!
Dry Looks: it’s fairly large pieces, hard to scoop into my small infuser (note to self, buy a better infuser)
Dry smells: lightly lime-y
Steeped taste: light, and lime-y, a little bit of added sweetener brings out the flavour
Steeped smell: light, lime-y
Steeped looks: very light, its a green tea, so not much colour
2nd and 3rd steeps: I just increased the steeping time (approx 8 min for 2nd steep, 10 for 3rd) and it was equally nice.
Overall impression: a nice light tea for when I want something warm but don’t need much flavour (like after over-indulging on spinach dip at supper). Not going to be one I bring to work or start out my day with, but I do enjoy having it at home as an option.
